My wife and I stayed at the Aurora Hotel in April 2014, for our honeymoon.
We found the hotel to be immediately welcoming, and the staff were very friendly for our whole stay. The reception manager (Andrea) was very helpful when we needed advice on getting around. They also have an English concierge (Andrew) who made it very easy if we needed anything ordered.
My only gripe (a minor one) was that our room had 2 single beds made up as 1 large bed. It was comfortable, but it always still felt like 2 single beds pushed together.
It is worth upgrading to the 3rd floor rooms, as they overlook the sea and have large balconies. I understand that the 2nd floor rooms face towards the land, with no particular views.
The hotel was clean, quiet and very well situated. It is a short (2 min) walk into the main part of Amalfi, including to the bars, restaurants and ferries. But it was far enough away from the buzz of the town centre to be very quiet at night.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Aurora Hotel is the perfect spot to spend an unforgettable holiday in Amalfi.Located nearby the Amalfi Marina, the hotel is only 500 meters from the hustle and bustle of Piazza Duomo. It is the ideal accommodation for visiting the Amalfi Coast and its picturesque villages, such as Ravello, Positano, Capri and even the Pompeii Excavation, which are all within easy reach. The bus station and the wharf are only 5 minutes’ walk from the hotel. After a long day-trip, Aurora Hotel is just a short walk to downtown and the beach, and it is accessible without climbing stairs. One final recommendation from the hotel management: if you want to spend a few relaxing days in Amalfi, please check Aurora Hotel location on Google Maps and compare it with other hotels. Most of Amalfi hotels are located in the noisy old Town, accessible by climbing long stairs; some others are located on the highway to Positano, so you will need to take the bus, a taxi or your car in order to reach the city, driving down one of the busiest roads in Italy! ... more less
